Hi, I am Elizabeth! I am married to a Chattanooga fire fighter, and mother to small boys who test my sanity and patience on an hourly basis. To keep my head above the waters of parenting, I get lost in books and try to articulate my thoughts into words with meaning. Our daily activities include playing outside, wrestling, sword fighting and trying to time everything to produce the most sleep at night. Follow me on twitter @BossMom_247 for insights on living with boys, possibly a few rants and definitely an overabundance of life updates.

On July 16th, 1969, around 9:30am ET, Apollo 11 was launched through the Earth’s atmosphere and the three astronauts aboard, plus hundreds of scientists below, set the course for the moon and history. 50...

Don’t Try To Fix It

People like to fix other people. You have a mouse problem, health issue, broken toilet, or need date night suggestions? Just ask the human race (on whatever social media platform is most populated) and...

Mama, You Have Got to Move
